Brighton head coach Roberto De Zerbi spoke about the importance of yesterday’s victory over Marseille and their coach Gennaro Gattuso.
Let us remind you that the success of the team of ex-coach Shakhtar was brought by the only goal scored in the last minutes of normal time – Joao Pedro received the ball in the opponent’s penalty area, removed the defender and beautifully shot into the far corner.
“This is the best moment of my entire time at Brighton,” De Zerbi said after the game. “Eight years ago, together with Foggia, I lost the final play-off of the Italian third league against Gattuso’s team. Immediately after the game with Marseille, I thought about my former players in Foggia, because we suffered so much then.
When you lose a game, you can’t forget it. They always live in my head such memories.”
We would like to add that thanks to this victory, Brighton overtook Marseille in the Europa League Group B standings and took first place.
